Romeo and Juliet in old age, still loving one another, still trying to time death at the same time. Romeo is the richer character in this short play, and his pain and love are easily felt. Juliet was distant to me, even to Romeo at times. Is it her illness, her grief, or is this a side of her we didn't see when she was young? A short expose about their child, and the sadness Juliet bears left me asking what happened.

Written in a form of old English, this is a nice view of what R&J might have
